The visuals are awesome, but there's not much of a gameplay.

The graphics and the theme were very well implemented. It was hard to remember which form was good for which environment. Also some more sound would be nice. Good work!

Your game have really good graphics, but i didn't understand how you play it properly.

From an art standpoint the game is really great. But from a gameplay standpoint the game is 100% random. It's impossible to consistently play the game if you have to depend on the randomness of the world on top of the randomness of a character. I actually beat the game by just staying one character until the end. From my experience every time I tried to change characters I typically ended up dying in two or three clicks.

This is a good theme, but I don't understand the game mechanic :(

Nice art! Definitely is a bit too much like roulette - the house usually wins...

As the title implies, it is Roulette - you have to be lucky to get through to the end.* However, that means there's not much choice you have and thus a victory doesn't feel rewarding.

A possible improvement might be that you can anticipate the upcoming world and roll on getting a character that may suit the next world better. In the current setup you get damaged by rolling a bad character in the current world, so maybe a transition phase between worlds to reroll would be better.

On the upside, I like your art style and the animation; and the introduction adds a nice bit of flavor. The parallax scrolling in the background looks nice, too. :)

* We figured that the "jungle man" would have the best chances of survival because the least worlds hurt him. He lead us to our only victory so far. ^^

Awesome graphics, but I didn't really understand the gameplay part. Is the shape that you turn into completely random? If so, I guess it's impossible to play it with a strategy.

Music would have been nice.

Same comments as from others - really nice work on the graphics but randomness on its own just doesn't make for engaging gameplay. Also sound would be good.

I had absolutely no idea what was happening, but I actually thought this game was pretty cool! It reminded me of some crazy anime. I liked what it was going for, a sort of choose your own adventure based on a roulette wheel spin. The graphics were fantastic. Really unique idea, so although it was a bit weird, I thought it was good.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

The game is too random. I didn't see a way to impact the results in one way or another.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
